Holy-Days: The Will to Good

 

…Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day respectively, are nothing if not our collective will to the Good.
Therein we celebrate abundance, all that is good and desirable, renewal and hope.
During most of the intervening year in the Western Hemisphere we’re consumed with pursuit of the Good, i.e., the means toward the ends (of Good).
The Good is sacred unto us therefore it is revered on “holy days.”

We relegate Goodness to the realm of the Gods and celebrate our own Good fortune as a manifestation of the favor (purification) of the Gods.
